Only current Weizmann students, faculty, and staff have remote-access privileges to Weizmann-licensed library resources. In order to access eResources, you must have a valid Weizmann username and password.
Best Practice: Use Proxied Links
A proxied link integrates the Library proxy server information in the URL, helping you seamlessly use Library resources when researching on- or off-campus.
Links which originate from Library resources are proxied, including links to full-text from Primo, the eJournal A-Z list (aka Browzine) and the Database A-Z list. When clicking a proxied link for the first time in a session, remote users are prompted for their Weizmann username and password. One successful login establishes access to all licensed resources during that session.
If your link isn't proxied, use the Library Proxy Bookmarklet
Links not accessed from Library web pages and resources are, most likely, not proxied. Therefore, you will often need a way to add the Weizmann proxy to these links.
The Weizmann Library Proxy Bookmarklet lets you easily include the library proxy and then reload a page to see if we have access. The bookmarklet works with any java-enabled browser (and can also work on mobile phones).
